COLLEGE SUCCESS STORy - JORDAN HUFFMAN, FRESHMAN AT UNIVERSITY OF GEORGIA’S DESTINATION DAWGS IN ATHENS, GA
JORDAN: I had my heart set on becoming a University of Georgia Bulldog. When I heard about the Destination Dawgs program, I knew I wanted to go there. I decided that I want to be a sportscaster for ESPN. I plan on interviewing my friend Adam, who is on the baseball team, and his teammates and coaches. I love being a Georgia Bulldog at Destination Dawgs!
JORDAN’S MOM: We started looking at inclusive college options when Jordan was in elementary school because we wanted him to have the same opportunities as kids without disabilities. We understood what the eligibility requirements for were, and made sure his IEP (Individualized Educational Program) was planned to meet those. When he got accepted, I did have hesitation because it was a new program, new teachers and a whole new environment. Once we went through the orientation and met his peer mentors, I knew everything was going to be fine.
